Ah, St Patrick's Day. We had our corned beef and cabbage yesterday as the grandkids have to go home Sunday afternoon. We headed off to La Villita on the Riverwalk for the festive events.
There were some booths with items for sale and booths with give-away items.
There was a band playing in the little amphitheater. Can you see the river?
Yes, it is definitely green. They dye it with some environmentally safe powder. You can also see theat everyone was decked out in green. Helen's eyebrows are green too.
It was a lovely day. We were a bit disappointed in the festival at La Villita after the big one they had last year. It was extremely downsized but I think the big one was at the Market Square this year.
We still had a great time walking around looking at everyone in their greenery.
The trees are all beginning to bud out.
There were lots of people out enjoying the day with us.
There was a parade at 3:00PM, alas, we had to head home so Steve and Helen could make the trek back to Marble Falls with Cameron and Morgan to meet up with their Mom.
It's fun to celebrate holidays that don't require much preparation....although finding green hairspray was a challenge this year.
The house is quiet without the grandkids this evening and will be even more quiet when Steve and Helen head back to Florida very, very early in the morning.
